At the age of 15, I started having a lot of pain when I would have my periods. No doctor would or could tell me what was going on until I was 20 and I had given birth to my daughter.
That’s when all my surgeons began to try and help. Well by the age of 22, my doctor said ‘How about we do a hysterectomy?’. I did and it didn’t help. I had 2 surgeries after that to remove endometriosis.
So having a hysterectomy didn’t help the problem either. Now its back to square one. Just because I no longer get periods doesn’t mean I don’t still have cramping, horrible pain, and depression.
It’s been a long hard road, but I’m being strong and fighting every step of the way!
